Nigel Taylor, senior research scientist and Narender Nehra, director of regulatory affairs in the Institute for International Crop Improvement (IICI) co-authored this article about how RNA interference is proving to be a valuable tool for agriculture, allowing researchers to develop pathogen-resistant and more-nutritious crops.
(The Scientist) Improving Crops with RNAi, RNA interference (RNAi) is the process by which small, their translation into proteins. RNAi is a particularly potent tool for fighting common crop pathogens. By simply, siRNAs can be produced, triggering the endogenous RNAi mechanisms to target and degrade homologous, that the pathogen-derived RNAi technology can deliver very effective and durable resistance. More recently, soybeans, and insect-resistant corn. To date, RNAi has proven more cost-effective

RNA interference is proving to be a valuable tools for agriculture, allowing researchers to develop pathogen-resistant and more-nutritious crops. 
Improving Crops With RNAi, An excerpt from The Scientist By Narender Nehra and Nigel Taylor | June 1, 2015 RNA interference (RNAi)—the process by which small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) bind, to agriculture. In fact, as a naturally occurring biological process, RNAi was mediating plant metabolism, . But in the last 15 years, RNAi’s role in agriculture has grown as researchers have developed greater, , nutrition, and yield of crop plants. RNAi-enhanced crops have been approved for cultivation
